The second anime that I every reviewed was a little show from the Gundam series called Mobile Suit Gundam 00. A show that was brought into my life right after Code Geass ended, and I decided to review it on this blog because I loved it so much. But I realized that a lot of things happened in the show so I decided to break up the seasons and review them separately. I vowed that I would follow up soon with the second season’s review.
Almost three years later and I still have not done it.
But I am now! This starts the first of, hopefully not too many, follow up reviews that I will do for shows where either I did not review the second season with the first (for some reason) or because it had not yet aired when I reviewed the first season!
So here is the follow up to my 2nd Anime Review and the 1st Sequel Saturday post, the review of Mobile Suit Gundam 00’s Second Season.
*SPOILER WARNING: Since this is a review of the second season there are spoilers for the end of the first season*
Welcome to the first Monday of the month which means one thing, Movie Monday! Now as I’ve mentioned, and attempted to start back in June to be met with failure. So it officially starts now. Movie Monday’s are basically going to work a lot like Anime Reviews and will be left with a grade ranging from A to F.
Since summer has officially started I decided to choose a movie that takes place over the summer, and has Summer in it’s name. I recently borrowed it from a friend of mine for the second time for this review, and just the other day finally purchased myself a copy which arrived just this morning.
Here is the 1st post for Movie Monday, Summer Wars!
Someone please tell me how we are in July already? I feel like the past year just flew by. Nevertheless, it is July again which means my favorite time of year has come once again. For those of you who are new, July celebrates the anniversary of the day that I made this crazy blog as well as my birthday. I love to use this month as a way to not only celebrate the blog, but also thank all of you who have been here to both read the blog and be good blogging friends. This past year has not been easy, I did disappear for a while, but that does not mean I want this opportunity to just fly by with the excuse of just waiting until next year. Because I did think about that briefly. But my love for celebration overwhelmed that.
In the end, this is a thank you to all of you who read my crazy posts, and no matter how hard I try I find myself unable to find the proper words to thank all of you. Some of you have helped me just by being around, or by posting funny things on twitter when I’m sad. Every comment, like, view, and follow means the absolute world with me.
Normally I do this a lot later, usually after the season has already started, but I decided to just give you guys an outline of what I am looking at watching before the season starts, and then at the end of the season, in the Wrap-Up, I’ll tell you guys what I actually followed through on and what my final impression of it was. Sound good? Good. In the end if I don’t like it, we’ll just go back to the regular format next season. Without further adieu, let’s get started!
Hello again everyone!! Now this post was inspired by a split second of thought that I had while watching an episode of Attack on Titan Season 2. Specifically episode 9. Now I do not want to go too into detail here because this post will contain spoilers for season 2. I debated just waiting another few weeks to put this post out but I’m super impatient so that is not going to happen. So if you want to listen to me ramble about Reiner for a little bit stick around.
Let’s Talk About Reiner’s Dissociative Identity Disorder
Hello again everyone! As promised here is the first of a series of posts that I had prepared as a way to end 2016. I know 2016 ended a few months ago now, but I still wanted to sit back and reflect on what some of my favorite parts of that season were.
So today we are starting off with the openings, since openings start off just about every episode of anime. I will warn you now, however, that some shows may be featured on both of these lists. It seemed liked if a show had an opening that I loved, then there was a good chance that I liked the ending a lot was well. But that is something I’ll talk about when we get to the ending part. Anyway, here are my Top 5 Openings of 2016!!
Hello everyone, how have you all been! I may have been gone for…a while but the important thing is that I am BACK! However, I feel like I need to give you guys a little bit of a rundown of what caused my sudden halt in blogging as well as my anime watching. This is a negative post, but a positive where I plan on outlining some things I have planned for the blog in the future.
I also noticed over my hiatus that I gained a few new followers so I want to use this opportunity to welcome them, as well as get them accustomed to the absolute randomness they have signed themselves up for.
In a world where anime comes out weekly each season, one anime defied this tradition. One show released all of its episodes in one sitting, so anime watchers from all over the world could binge watch it before anime other anime in the Summer 2016 Anime Season aired. What am I talking about? Randomness in all honesty, but that is something that the show I am reviewing today decided to do. The entire show released all the episodes at one time. Hold on let me take that back. You could watch all of the episodes in one sitting if you just happen to be a Premium Member of Crunchyroll, but I digress.
Anyway, here is my 37th Anime Review for a show fresh from the Summer 2016 Anime Season, ReLIFE.
Man the end of this season really snuck up on me before I knew it. One minute I was watching the seventh episode of Handa-kun and then BOOM all of a sudden it was week 12 and I was behind on so many episodes it was not funny. It also did not help that I had some friends come and stay at my apartment the last weekend of the season and I got super behind on shows, but me rambling is not why we are here today. We are here because even though it snuck up on me, the Summer 2016 Anime Season has come to an end. And let me just say that I cried a whole lot more than I thought I would. For those of you who may not know, the wrap-ups are kind of like mini reviews of my thoughts on what I had of the show. This season there are a few exceptions to the usual pattern of the mini reviews. The first is the matter of ReLIFE, the only reason there is an exception for ReLIFE is because it was released all in one go for a certain lucky few of us and I wrote a full Anime Review. There will be a link in the ReLIFE section for you all to go and check it out if you have not done so already. The second is actually a common thing which is that one of the shows I watched is not over yet so I will just let you know what I think of it so far! Sound good?
Without further adieu, here is my Wrap-Up for the Summer 2016 Anime Season!
So I have only done a few Top 5 lists so far but this is one I have been considering doing for a while. I have mentioned in previous posts that I love supporting, or background, characters sometimes more than I do the main characters. Throughout the years I have been watching anime, some side characters have truly captured my heart even when a bit overshadowed by the main cast. I know this is a Top 5 but I just cannot give them an actual rank. Just think of it of five of them that are all of equal value. I could probably make this list super long, so to save that I have limited it to only five and just some male characters. My favorite females list is for a different day.
Without further ado, here are my Top 5 Male Supporting Anime Characters
